Dermal Fillers

As the skin ages, it loses some of its collagen, elastin and fat. And this loss is generally the biggest cause of lines and wrinkles. Temporary Dermal Fillers will help to restore plumpness to your skin to give you a more youthful appearance and minimise the tell-tale signs of ageing.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Temporary Dermal Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance found between the cells of body tissues. Hyaluronic acid has become the preferred filler with most experienced and qualified injectors as it is more likely to be compatible with our bodies and therefore less likely to cause an allergic reaction.

What can I expect during the treatment session?

Dermal Fillers are injected into designated areas by an experienced and qualified injector. A topical anaesthetic cream is used prior to the procedure and this makes the treatment more comfortable. Tiny needles are also used which also lessens the discomfort.

How long is the treatment and what is the recovery time?

The procedure typically takes between 15 to 45 minutes but this will depend on the number of areas to be treated.You can return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.

How many injections will I need?

This will depend on the number of areas to be treated and the depth of the wrinkles. Facial lines that are shallow will require a minimum amount of solution while deeper wrinkles on the forehead for instance and sagging cheeks may require significantly more solution to achieve the desired results.

What areas can be treated with Dermal Fillers?

Cheeks, temples, orbital rims, brows, tear troughs, cheeks, nose, chin, lips, area between the eyes, smile lines, jaw-line, earlobes, back of hands, horizontal neck lines and décolletage.

How long do the results last?

This will depend on the type of Dermal Filler used but the results may last 6-18 months. 6 monthly top-up treatments are highly recommended to ensure longer lasting results.

Are there any side-effects?

Most patients report no side-effects beyond mild bruising and swelling that disappears within a few days
